Old Winchester rifle parts

I am looking for a front barrel band for an old Winchester Model 57. Its a bolt action .22 rifle. I have looked on the websites of most retail gun and parts stores. No luck at all! Does anybody know of a person that fabricates parts for old rifles? The chance of finding an original part for this rifle is next to nothing. This has been a 20 year search!

Have you tried Out Back Gun Parts? Their web site lists the model 57 as one of the models they have parts for.

Winchester rifle parts

LarryNTX! THANK YOU your advice panned out! After 20 YEARS of looking, I got the front barrel band for a Winchester Model 57! My friend was very happy to get the part he needed to put his rifle back together! Ken
